Take a Walk through Time: OHC Offers Summer History Walks for Many Interests


July 7 - August 25, 2018

Guided walking tours are available throughout the summer featuring several different themes.  Tours run from 75-90 minutes, and are reasonably priced (most are free for OHC members, children and college students).  Reservations are recommended.  Try one soon -- and find out how fun it can be to experience learning in motion!

  • Freedom's Friends Underground Railroad & Abolitionist History Walk - every Saturday at 11:00 a.m. in July and August.  Hear stories about Oberlin's most famous freedom seekers and people known to have helped them make their way to freedom.
  • Radicals & Reformers History Walk - offered the first Sunday of this month and next at 11:00 a.m. The setting is Westwood Cemetery and this tour promises a pleasing balance of the scenic landscape and stories of some of the many spirited men and women of Oberlin who simply refused the status quo.
  • Self-Guided Tablet Tours - For those who prefer to move at their own pace, borrow an iPad from the Heritage Center any Tuesday through Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to experience the Freedom's Friends History Walk or the Picture the Past:  Historic Downtown Oberlin walking tour.  
Register for a history walk.
